The film is based on the Japanese manga series written by Kaiu Shirai and illustrated by Posuka Demizu. It was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump from August 2016 to June 2020. A TV anime series adaptation by CloverWorks premiered from January to March 2019 with Season 2 broadcasting on January 2021.
It follows the story of Emma, Norman, and Rey, three young orphans who discover that their orphanage is most assuredly not all that it seems. When Emma and Norman find themselves discovering that one of their fellow orphans wasn't actually adopted, but was instead offered as food to a race of monsters that are seemingly ruling the world, the story creates a spine chilling narrative that sees the trio playing a game of cat and mouse with their overseers as they try to formulate a plan to escape.
